'Yellow Bird' revisited

By ChiliMan
Way-hey! What a lovely surprise Grin Thank you so much, Jennnn (taggart), Cathy (Holmewood) and Dave (WhiteRose1) for your User Awards on my dragonfly Smile


Dave, on Monday you commented on the unyellowness of the Yellow Bird and I thought it might turn yellow as it matured. Well it did, so I took some pics to show you how it’s ended up looking Smile


For a time frame, Monday’s shot was taken last Tuesday (15th) and today’s shot was taken yesterday, the 23rd.

I wasn’t gonna upload V2 ‘cos I didn’t nail the yellow quite right…but what the hey, here it is anyway. V2 was shot in the dining room on Tuesday (21st).

Gosh, that looks messy. Ok, to neatify:

Monday’s shot – 15/10
V2 today – 21/10
V1 today – 23/10

Andrew,I am turning a yucky shade of yellow trying to work out dates,days and times here !!
I think your yellow here is better than Mondays which you took on Tuesday,
but not quite as bright as your shot in the dining room on Tuesday.
I think when you go to the toilet next,take your camera and yellow bird with you,and see what comes out with your efforts there !!
Simply stunning with a 3D quality... Excellent presentation

Lovely shots Andrew. It took me a while to work out the dates as well but it all makes sense now! Cathy

V1 the natural version works best for me, it is good to see this beautiful flower again once it has reached maturity
